. deputies arrested a female passenger. she was not hurt, but investigators think these three suspects had earlier escaped a highway chase. we are homing to get an update from the alameda county sheriff's department in 30 minutesful we'll pass that information along to you once we get an update. live near castro valley. i'm cara moriarty. new information about last night's deadly shooting in oakland. two people were killed on interstate 880 while warriors fans were driving home from last night's game. claudine wong live in oakland with important new details about those victims. >> reporter: that's right.
i've been talking with investigators this morning and as they put the pieces together in this investigation we're getting a clearer idea of what happened. we are on the onramp to interstate 880. this is jackson street and originally thought the shooting may have been happening here because there were shell casings on this onramp. now police tell me the shooting did happen on the freeway. they believe someone in another car opened fire on this as it was driving up the interstate. it was about 10:30 last night. the warriors game was just getting out, so there was a lot of traffic on the freeway. that's when the first calls came in to the chp about some kind of collision with an ambulance coming. then a few minutes later oakland police, their dispatch got a call about an argument and shots fired. both agencies responded to the scene, and that's where they found two people in and near a white porsche that had been shot. the driver found dead in the
car, the passenger found dead on the freeway. police now tell me both were wearing warriors gear. they do believe both likely came from the warriors game which was just getting out. what they don't know is who's responsible. >> this is a senseless act because you have individuals who are firing weapons in a densely populated area without regard to life and safety of other people, so this is a very senseless act and we want to get to the bottom of it. >> here's what's been happening overnight. the freeway was shut down for several hours. around 2:00 this morning, it did open back up to traffic. they collected a lot of evidence from the scene. we're told, lots of shell case. they scoured it for evidence, and then they took a lot of names for witnesses. we are told that they have not contacted those witnesses yet. they're just beginning those interview processes right now as they try to piece together what happened. they've been really trying to figure out more about the two people killed in this. we're told one of the people is
in his 20s, the other victim in his 30s. they are believed to be from the bay area but probably not from oakland itself, and again, their families have not been notified so very, very early. we know investigators have been working all night long trying to figure this out. it will be a long day. they're asking for anyone who was in and around this area who saw or heard anything to give them a call. live in oakland claudine wong ktvu channel 2 news. happening now, things are starting to get heated at a hearing surrounding the irs scandal in washington d. c. right now recently ousted irs chief steven miller is getting questioned about what he knew about the irs targeting conservative groups. coming up at 7:15, kyla campbell will have the late fest what's happening inside that meeting and what was said that was so tense. and in the meantime president obama is shifting his focus to job creation. later today he'll go to baltimore maryland to visit a community center that teaches job skills. he will also speak at a

to face terrorism charges after being arrested in idaho. this video was taken yesterday shortly after the suspect was taken into custody. the fbi says it has strong evidence he helped a terrorist group in his home country plan an attack that may have involved a weapon of mass destruction. investigators are confident the plot has crumbled as a result of this arrest. and syria is getting a boost in advanced missile support from russia. officials say the missiles are outfitted with an advanced guidance system that makes them more effective than the older versions sold in syria -- sold to syria. the missiles will allow syria to prevent any attempt by international forces to strengthen syrian rebels by imposing a naval embargo or a no fly zone. time now 7:19. happening now in washington, congress is debating how to regulate drone airplanes here in the united states. these are live pictures right inside the hearing room now. a house committee hearing. privacy concerns have been

the main part. after that it looks good to dublin. let's go to steve. sal sleeping in for me is 5:45 in the morning. >> that is late for us. >> you're like whoa. a lot of low clouds around, a little chill in the morning air. this is a by-product of yesterday's system. we have an onshore push, water temps are cold, low 50s. kind of a little roller coaster over the next five, seven, ten days. a chilly morning, sunny and breezy, except for that patchy low clouds. the fog will start to get smashed. it will be warmer inland, temperatures get back into the 80s. early next week starts off warm, and then forecast models are remarkably 'n sync and dropping down a cold and seasonally cold system on wednesday and maybe northern california. it depends on how deep it goes, if it goes over water or stays over land. or maybe some rain, possibility of snow in the sierra. that wouldn't be until thursday or friday. low clouds all that's left from
yesterday's system. the higher clouds are down in southern california. all i can find really is kind of cloud cover down there, not much else. cool pattern in place. mostly sunny today after some of those patchy low clouds. the warmer weather will take us into the weekend. 40s for some on the temps. 50s, we are starting to bounce off those morning lows. it will be a breezy pattern mainly out of the west. it's an onshore breeze. had a couple 30s in lake county, 70s on the desert but held in check due to the cloud cover down there. for us it will be sunny after that patchy low cloud deck and high pressure on the way for the weekend. sunny and breezy, a little chill in that morning air, and the patchy low clouds in place. otherwise i think they'll stay confined the to the coast and bay. 60s, 70s up to lake county and napa concord, walnut creek, 60s closer to berkeley alameda. 60s upper 60s san jose, low 60s on the coast and in san fransisco. bay to breakers, a little cooler, mostly cloudy with some fog sunday morning.

struck by a passing vehicle. the porsche collides into the guardrail and veers to the right, comes to rest within lanes 4 and 5 of the freeway. inside the porsche we found one person suffered from multiple gunshot wounds that was deceased. >> you have two people dead, two men, one in his 20s, one in his 30s. what to we know about them? and do we think they were targeting. >> it definitely appears that this was not a random act of violence given how the vehicle was shot up. there were no reports from witness at this point that anyone in the porsche was shooting. it looks like just the suspect vehicle was doing the shooting. we don't know if they were coming from the warriors game. they may have been at the game, they may not have been, they may have been watching the game at a local venue. >> what happens now? >> we have joint investigation with the california highway patrol and the oakland police department piecing together this incident as pieces of a puzzle. we are hoping that anyone in the area who may have been a witness would be willing to contact the highway patrol. you can do it anonymously at
